We have lots of Pinion Pine trees, so we decided to try to harvest and roast some for Thanksgiving.
11/21/15 - We picked some Pinion pine cones in August, put them in a sack, and now it's time to get the nuts:
They're not as sappy as they were on the trees:
Not sure how many are good, but we'll see:
11/24/15 - Try sorting by weight
(heavier probably have nuts inside) - about half were "heavy"
Soak the nuts in water saturated with any kind of coarse salt:
Pre-heat the oven to 325, put the
nuts on a baking sheet, heat for 10 minutes, then every minute
Transfer the other nuts to a plate
and let them cool. Once cool they can be dropped in a bowl.
